This week the challenge over on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog was to create a Birthday Card. Since there is never a time we don't all need a birthday card, this is a perfect challenge in which to participate.
Needless to say that the Sassy Cheryls Digi Store has no lack of images perfect for a birthday celebration. I had to use this delightful image called "Momma's Little Clown," and you have to admit he doesn't look scary like most clowns do. He obviously had a great Momma, because she's put together the perfect clown ensemble for him. Mostly he's colored with Copics, but there's some paper piecing for his suit of clothes. I want to thank Kathy Curry for the idea on the polka dotted shoes. How perfect are they for a clown?
All the papers are from a free kit created by Susan Darter for Raspberry Road Designs called Clovis the Clown. The do remind me of the circus. The sentiment is an acrylic stamp I picked up in the dollar bin at Michael's, and the curly-cues are made with a punch that I recently bought on clearance at Tuesday morning. I punched and layered about 8 for each one to give it a real 3D effect.
I'm off to get this posted on the Blog Challenge, and I'm not even last minute. How about that?
